In her third album release, HeeSun Lee makes her epic comeback to music with a bombastic wall of sound. “Beauty For Ashes” starts out on full force of precise rap skills, hard-hitting beats & flawless collaborations. With pumping tracks like “All Out”, “Underdog”, and “Losing Faith”, any audience will gravitate to dance and lay back on the hype of the music. The title track lets Heesun and her harmonious vocalists “Alia Akilli” & “Dana Joe” experiment a refreshing direction that appeals to both rap and dance-pop audiences. From bumping to the album’s anthem tracks, she then, unapologetically reveals her emotional lyricism in tear-shedding songs like “I Love You, Daddy” within her ambient and groovy beats. Beauty For Ashes concludes on the passionate theme of hope and finding the light in the darkness. The album is the first of being released independently but its progressive energy and hype will change the game of hip-hop for many years to come.
There is so much for the listeners to hear on this album. It was hard for me to pick my favorite track to feature. From the Intro, Beauty For Ashes, Underdog, Losing Faith, Bloodlines and I Love Daddy. I couldn’t really choose. So I picked, “Treasure featuring Laquan Green.” Treasure has compassion, honesty and is inspiring!
